The cemetery at Karczew is located on a sandy hill in an urban area. It is surrounded by a modest fence that does not restrict access. There are only a few derelict stones remaining.

As I was leaving the cemetery in 2008, I spoke with a local resident who mentioned the usual story of stones carried away for use in construction both during and after World War II. He showed me the small remaining section of the original fence and mentioned that in the past the hill on which the cemetery is located was several meters higher. He said that he remembered sledding down the cemetery hill when he was a boy.
